We were advised to try this place rather than Frankies as it was less expensive. The atmosphere was rather plain but the food was very good. Frankies is more luxurious I'm sure and, if you are looking for something "special" go there. We had veal which was prepared very well and was tasty. The place could use a little upgrade... More

Cozy, adorable interior. Owner Billy always greets you with a smile and his servers top notch. The Chicken Parmigiana is amazing...crispy light on the out side...moist and full of flavor on the inside , covered with a wonderful marinara sauce. Meals served with warm bread and garden salad. Strongly suggest to save room for his top rated Tiramisu...its my favorite.... More

The food was good but the way service was strange. We were rushed out at closing. I do not think I will eat her again.

We ate dinner here Saturday night and had a decent meal. We each started with a glass of Merlot which was very good. My friend had eggplant parm for dinner, it was huge and very good. I had rig's with marinara which was fair. The bread was awesome and salad/dressing was very good.

It's a small but intimate place. We were told we'd have to wait if we didn't have a reservation, which we didn't, and we did (have to wait), but not too long, and there were chairs for the "waiters". The food and the ambiance were good. I would recommend it.

Had a very good meal at Billy's. Service was a little slow. We're used to bread at the table before salad. When the bread finally did arrive it was piping hot..which is good but it wasn't sliced and was too hot to hold. Overall wed recommend
